Today was our last day to love on our Guatemalan babies. At the malnutrition center, everything went smoothly as we played games, sang songs, and ate hotdogs to celebrate the 4th of July. A group of us went to a nursing home and did crafts and music with people there. We shed tears of sadness and tears of joy, but we made it and can’t wait to get home and see our families! Again, thank you for you prayers and love, we couldn’t have done this without you!

Here is a little about what we do everyday. In the morning we start the day with breakfast and devotion time at the hotel then we drive an hour on the bus to get to the center where 99 little babies and toddlers live. New babies arrive every day and are sent there to live because they are severely malnourished. Their shortest stay is 8 months some have been there 3 years.
We arrive and help the nannies bathe and clothe the children then we play with them and do activities with them. We help feed them and change them and feed them some more etc. in the afternoon we work on much needed work around the center. the guys have been helping the centers 2 maintenance men build a chicken coop and pavilion for the families to spend time with their children when they come to visit. We leave the center at 4:30 every day and drive back to the hotel and get ready for dinner and then devotion time. After that is hang out time and bed!

What an incredible day we’ve had! Some of us zip lined across a coffee field, some ate lots of chocolate, and we all got to explore the wonderful city of Antigua! Our God is so majestic and mighty. We are thankful that he has kept us safe and we cannot wait to go to the malnutrition center tomorrow! Thank you Jesus for your protection!
